The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research, and the one in Fort Worth Walk is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27 at Panther Island Pavilion.

Participants will learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services.
